Health and Social Care Communication. Examples from work with a service user with memory problems, and with new users of a playgroup.
LO4 – Be able to communicate and interact effectively in a health and social care environment OCR Nationals Cambridgeshire Level 3 Unit 1 Certificate/Diploma Health and Social Care Developing effective communication in health and social care The service user that I plan to have a one-to-one interaction will in Majella. I am going to be a care worker working at a local day centre. Majella attends this particular day centre three times a week; I am planning on having a one-to-one interaction with this service user for reminiscence therapy. Majella has very little memory and therefore this type of therapy would be the most appropriate in order for her to try and reconstruct her memory of the past. This, in return should help Majella to communicate more effectively with not only care workers, but also her family and other service users she may wish to communicate socially with. The fact that Majella has very little memory means this type of therapy would be most appropriate for her. It can be very useful and helpful. Reminiscence will provide a way for Majella to interact socially and conversationally based on her long term memory. This means her long term memory is acting as a facilitator. Reminiscence groups can be done easily and each topic is easy to plan and put into practise. I can get videos of old fields and old loved film stars may revive memories for Majella,
Unit 5 Anatomy and physiology in health and social care
0Unit 5: Anatomy and Physiology for Health and Social Care. Aim and purpose This unit aims to enable learners to understand aspects of the anatomy and physiology of human body systems. Learners will be able to gain an overview of the organisation of the human body before looking at how body systems work together to provide energy for the body. Learners will have the opportunity to investigate how homeostatic mechanisms operate in the body. Unit introduction This unit introduces core knowledge of cellular structure and function, and the organisation of the body as a whole, and then builds on this to develop a more detailed knowledge of the fine anatomy and physiology of the systems involved in energy metabolism. Learners will examine the homeostatic mechanisms involved in regulating these systems to maintain health. Learners will be given the opportunity to undertake practical activities which will require them to take measurements of the cardio-vascular system, the respiratory system and of body temperature, using noninvasive techniques to investigate normal responses to routine variations in body functioning. This unit provides the core understanding of human physiology that underpins the study of the specialist physiology units within this programme. The unit also provides an overview of body functioning that is valuable for anyone working or intending to work in a field
Child development - patterns of development. To increase my awareness and knowledge of a childs development, I am going to analyse and assess a case study based on a child called Marie.
AO1 Child development Patterns of development In this piece of coursework, I am going to study the general development of a child from birth to eight years of age. I aim to be able to discuss and compare their development against the general recognized norms of a child's development and factors that influence development. The different types of development that I will be examining are the physical growth and physical development, the intellectual development, linguistic development and lastly the emotional and social development of a child. To increase my awareness and knowledge of a child's development, I am going to analyse and assess a case study based on a child called Marie. Case study Marie is a seven year old girl who lives with twin sister and her mother who is her primary care giver. She has two other siblings, a brother and sister who are older than her but she was not brought up with them as they were put into care when they were three and four years old as their mother could not handle them. However Marie sees her siblings regularly. Marie never had her father as a permanent part in her life as when she was three years old her dad moved away. He lived with her until she was eighteen months old before he split with her mum. Marie went to playschool at three years of age and she also moved at the age of three.

It is an important aspect of everyday life, especially in a health and social care environment. This is because it is a way in which a service user and provider can share and obtain information. It can help express emotion for example a service user may feel unhappy about a certain aspect of their care they can use communication to let their service provider know this. They can then discuss between them what the service user may feel is more appropriate, this helps make the service user feel more valued as their service provider has used oral communication to help make sure their care is more specialised for the service user. It is also a necessary to build up a rapport the only way a person can get to know another
n this piece of coursework I am going to focus on the case study of my child Marie. I am going to explain a range of factors that have affected and influenced Maries development in a physical, intellectual, linguistic, emotional and social matter.
AO2 - Factors that influence development and norms of development Child development is a process that every child goes through. It refers to the changes that occur as the child grows and develops in relation to being physically health, mentally alert, emotionally sound and socially competent. In child development, children learn and master skills like sitting, walking, talking, skipping and many more. These master skills are enhanced and encouraged by the physical, intellectual, linguistic, emotional and social development of the child. All children should be able to crawl, walk, and talk and follow sequential pattern of development; unfortunately however there are some children who do not follow a pattern and have a delay in development. Development delay is where a child has not learnt the skills that are expected in that time point. For example a child would be expected to walk between 9-15 months, however if a child cannot walk by 20 months, the child would be considered to have a developmental delay. Development delay can occur in any of the five key areas of development. There can be many different factors that can cause development delays but the main factors that can cause it are the biological and social factors. Genetic inheritance or chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome, can contribute to a child having development delay. These illnesses and
Equality, diversity and rights
Equality, diversity and rights * The meaning of the word equality is that all individuals have the same value but it still doesn't mean that they all should be treated in the same way.

Danielle Crawford 8034 Index Title: Page Number: Introduction: 2 A01: 3 A02: 17 A03: 21 A04: 33 Bibliography: 42 Introduction The aim of this assignment is to develop an awareness that positive care environments reply on practitioners having a comprehensive understanding of the diverse society we live in. I will investigate how the service user’s rights and well-being relies on the care practitioners through the care value base and how it can enhance my service user’s opportunities in accessing services they need to. I will be looking at their legislation, school prospects and complaints procedure to see how well they promote a positive care environment. I will use my work placement to help me complete my assignment; I will choose one of the following service-user groups specified access services: - Health - Early years - Care of older people - Individuals with special needs I am currently on work placement at St Mary’s Roman Catholic School, therefore I will be focusing on the positive care environment using early years. I will obtain policies from the school and will asses how these create a

I will be discussing the barriers which could prevent a service user from gaining access to a service. I will also be looking at the legal rights each and every service user has in health care settings and how legislation plays a part in this. I will examine the importance of the care value base in care settings and how it can help create a positive care environment. Creating and maintaining a positive care environment requires care practitioners to be open minded as the values and beliefs of service users will differ from their own, therefore they need to have an understanding of the diverse society we live in.
